Our dearly beloved Sharon Joy Casey suddenly passed at the age of 65 from a major stroke on Monday, October 16, 2017, at the Civic Hospital in Ottawa, ON. She was surrounded by loving family. Her remains were cremated at the Pinecrest Cemetery in Ottawa where her son, Johnathan Whiteman, is buried. A Celebration of Life was held on Saturday, October 21, 2017, to honour her and the courage, compassion, and wisdom that she bestowed unto others. Members of the local community held a memorial lunch on October 27 to pay tribute to her contributions and selflessness. More about Sharon can be found at https://www.afterlife.co/ca/obituary-ottawa-sharon-casey-6391987.

Cherished memories and condolences may be left at the above link as well. Memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Lung Cancer Canada. Sharon’s family is grateful for the sympathy and support received.

Sharon was an inspirational and awesome mother to Crystal, Mark, and predeceased son, Johnathan; endearing and delightful Nanny (grandmother) to Bryce, Kelsey, Liam, Ayva, Noah, and Toby (by common law); and wonderful friend to many. Beloved Grandmother Selina Blair (Halverson), Lillian Anne and Garfield Hall (whom were like a close aunt and uncle to her and her children), and Stepfather Harvey Johnson predecease Sharon. Brothers Douglas, Larry, and Hal Roy Johnson also predecease Sharon. Mother Dorothy Johnson, Brother Harvey Johnson, and her two dearest sisters, Deborah Pakulak and Lynda Klawitter live on.

Sharon is fondly remembered and immensely missed. In loving memory and respect, we toast in Sharon’s name and with a quote she shared not long before she passed,

“I can’t promise that I’ll be here for the rest of your life;
but I can promise that I’ll love you for the rest of mine.”

And she did. To infinity and beyond, Mum, always and forever.

FRANKE: Helena Gertrud of Ottawa

Posted by on September 6, 2017

images-4

Franke, Helena Gertrud (née Bendig) 89, of Ottawa Ontario, passed away peacefully on August 7, 2017. Helena was born in East Prussia (Ostpreußen) on June 4 1928.
Helena is survived by her son Norbert Georg Franke. Her husband Karl Heinz Franke (1967), her son’s Eric Kurt Franke (1998) and Mark Gregory Franke(2014) precede her in death.She is survived by her sisters Ruth Kavanaugh, Hannelore Parsons, Irmgard Habner and Eva Zahn.She (Tante Leni, Oma) is survived by her many nieces and nephews and her grandson Amos by Eric Kurt Franke/Sonya Franke.
Helena, from her childhood years in pre-WW2 Germany, through her teen years in war torn Europe and her emigration as a young adult from post-WW2 West Germany to Canada, has been a life of hardship, loss, joy, happiness, tragedy and debilitation due to Alzheimer’s in her latter years of life. Throughout her life, her dedication to, and love for family is that which defined her foremost and it is these attributes which gave her strength and fortitude to overcome these hurdles and to continue on.
In spite of losing her husband and two sons, she endured. After the untimely loss of her husband she was tasked with raising her three sons and did so without looking back. Her love for her sons was unwavering and steadfast and a true testament to what motherhood means. In good times and hard times raising her sons, she was a safe harbor from the storm.
Whether it was endeavoring to re-unite her parents, sisters and brother after the war or living her belief that the most important facet of life is family, she believed and lived her life to these truths. She helped wherever help was needed and would do so without hesitation.
God bless her soul and may she find peace in His house of many mansions.
The funeral service is scheduled for Monday August 28 2017.
 Visitation/Service will be held at All Saints Lutheran Church, 1061 Pinecrest Rd. Ottawa, ON from 10:30 hrs.
